This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

To the Allied Professions ^ 

Medicine and Pharmacy y 

For many years the house of 
E. R. Squibb ^ Sons has enjoyed the confidence 
of physicians and pharmacists. Its labors for the 
improvement of remedies ^ the perfection of methods 
and the encouragement of scientific practice in 
prescribing and dispensing have been appreciated 
and due credit has been received. 

Partly in grateful acknowledgment of 
the confidence bestowed upon the management of 
the house and partly to promote a more thorough 
acquaintance with the work and products of the 
Squibb laboratories J this volume is respectfully 
presented to those callings which are dedicated to 
the amelioration of the sufferings of mankind. 

E. R. Squibb ^ Sons 
January J 1906. 



SQUIBB'S MATERIA MEDICA 

seems a fitting title for this record of the Squibb Line of pro- 
ducts, embracing as it does the entire Materia Medica recog- 
nized by the U. S. Pharmacopoeia of 1900 (Eighth Decennial 
Revision) and the National Formulary. We have also included 
those non-official and newer remedies which are at present 
more or less prominently before the profession. 

CL The purpose of this book is twofold. It is intended to 
serve as a list of prices, and in addition as a work of reference 
in which may be found all the more important data concerning 
the nature, source, physical and therapeutical properties, doses, 
antidotes, etc., of the drugs recorded. Care has been exercised 
to present information which will be useful as well as interest- 
ing to the Physician and to the Pharmacist 

CL In modern medical education comparatively litde time is 
given to the study of materia medica. The science of the 
profession has been so greatly extended in other fields, that 
the student is largely compelled to seek information about 
the remedies employed as best he may. Moreover the mul- 



VI SQUIBB'S MATERIA MEDICA 

tipiication of medicinal preparations and the introduction of 
new remedial agents have vastly increased the tax upon the 
physician's memory. A reference to Squibb's Materia Medica 
will give at a glance just those items which the memory 
refuses to carry. 

CL In the traditions of the house of E. R. Squibb & Sons con- 
siderations of quality have always taken precedence over those 
of cost Therefore, to examine into the price of a Squibb 
product without recognizing also its merits, is to inquire into 
only one side of the question. The information contained in 
the following pages places in the hands of our friends a con- 
venient means of comparison between medicinal products of the 
highest quality and the varying grades found in the market 

Nomendafore and Dosage 

CL The Names of the articles have been arranged in alpha- 
betical order. The Titles employed are those in most common 
use. The English name is followed by that naturally associ- 
ated with the article in the minds of those familiar with scien- 
tific terms and at the same time accustomed to the language of 
the trade. The official (U S. P. 1900) and the National For- 
mulary titles are given in a type different from that of the 
body of the list — ^in Italics. The Squibb products are dis- 
tinguished by their names being given in black-faced type, 
followed by the designation ''Squibb.** The light-faced type in 
titles and the omission of the name ''Squibb" indicate that the 
articles so listed are not Squibb products, but are merely men- 
tioned for convenience of reference. 



SQUIBB'S MATERIA MEDICA VII 

CL The Doses o{ the official articles are those reported in 
the new edition (1900) of the U« S. Pharmacopoeia; doses 
of other products according to the best recognized authorities. 
The specific gravities of the official liquids are determined at 
25° C^ the temperature prescribed by the U. S. P. 1900. 



Nedidoal Tabids 

CL In response to a growing demand made upon us, and as an 
acknowledgment of the tendency of the time, we have added 
our Medicinal Tablets to this record of our manufactures (See 
Part II) . Physicians and Pharmacists alike will appreciate the 
importance of this step, which places at their service a full line 
of tablets prepared with the greatest care and skill, containing 
the Squibb products in their full therapeutic efficiency, and 
meeting in all respects the high quality standard of this house 
for purity, uniformity and reliability. The Squibb tablets are 
made by carefully controlled compression, experience having 
proved this method to be the most accurate. Exception is 
made only in a few cases where the moulded form offers some 
mechanical advantage. On those tablets which are listed in 
coated form the coating is very soluble, presents no hindrance 
to disintegration, effectively masks the unpleasant taste of the 
ingredients and prevents the loss of volatile constituents. 
Those of our tablets which contain insoluble medicaments, 
such as acetanilid, the bismuth salts, phenacetine, salol and 
the like, may be relied upon to disintegrate as soon as they 
reach the stomach and to exhibit full therapeutic activity, their 
formulae being scientifically constructed. 



VIII SQUIBB'S MATERIA MEDICA 

Digestive Fermeiifs and Animal Products 

CL The importance o{ digestive {erments and animal products 
in modem medical practice has made it necessary to establish a 
special and fully equipped laboratory for their manufacture, com- 
manding {resh and ample supplies of raw materials In perfect 
condition and of best quality. We are now prepared to meet 
promptly all demands for Diastase, Hemoglobin, Meat Peptone, 
Ox-gall, Pancreatin, Pepsin, Rennin, Suprarenal Glands Dried 
and Thyroid Glands Dried. See full details regarding these 
products under their respective tides in the following pages. 

Bacteriological Material 

CL Physicians, Bacteriologists and Instructors have long felt the 
need for a source of bacteriological supplies where cultures of 
guaranteed purity could be obtained prompdy and at a reason- 
able price. Inquiries and requests for material of this kind have 
come to us from time to time, and realizing the importance of 
thoroughly reliable cultures for purposes of comparison, identi- 
fication and study, we have established also a bacteriological 
laboratory under the personal supervision of one of the most 
noted bacteriologists in the country. Especial effort is made to 
meet the requirements of colleges, and of those investigators 
engaged in bacteriological research. Our present list of cul- 
tures (See Part II) comprises some 400 different species, 
including all important pathogenic, non-pathogenic and chromor 
genie bacteria. Others are constantly being added, and in a 
short time all known bacteria either for scientific or practical 
purposes will be kept in stock. Cultures, living and perman- 
ent, and microscopical specimens, stained and unstained, will 
be furnished in any quantity. 

Cultures of living patht^enic bacteria will be supplied only to 
those duly qualified to receive and handle them without danger to 
themselves or others. 



SQUIBB'S MATERIA MEDICA IX 

Nnmberlng System 

(I, A Number, as well as the name, identifies each one ol 
our products. These numbers are permanent; they will not 
be changed. Physicians may therefore prescribe and phar- 
macists may specify any Squibb article by these identification 
marks, now and at any time in the future, confident that their 
requisitions will be perfectly understood. 

CL The principle upon which our numbering q^stem is based 
is perhaps best explained by a few examples. Thus: 

Acid Boric, Squibb 

Crystals No. 160-S-l 
Gramilated No. 160-S-2 
Powdered No. 160-S-3 

Bismuth Subcarbonate, Squibb 
No. 820-S-l 

Eiixir Digestive Compound, Squibb 
No. 1725-S-l 

Extract Opium, Squibb 
No. 2230-S-l 

riuidextract Cascara Sagrada Aromatic, Squibb 
No. 2435-S-l 

Mixture Diarrhea, Squibb 
No. 4365-S-l 

Sodium Soiicylate, Squibb 
No. 6830-S-l Powdered 
No. 6830-S-2 From 00 Wintergreen 

Tablets Blaud^s 5 gr., Squibb 

No. 10340-S-2 Chocoiate^oated 

Tablets Heart Tonic and Stimulant, Squibb 
No. 10860-S-l Plain 
No. 10860-S-2 Chocolate-coated 

CL The leading number applies to the substance, the second- 
ary number to its form or character. Between these two num- 
bers is in every instance the letter "S", which stands {or 
Squibb. 

([» Prescribing by these permanent numbers may prove a con- 
venience to the physician and under certain conditions even a 
safe-guard against lay-criticism or dangerous self-medication; 
The pharmacist may find it convenient to order our products by 
these numbers, and the wholesaler may feel benefited by this 
system since it enables him to handle his stock more easi^.

Prices and Packing 

(I, Our Prices include containers, packing and boxing, and 
we desire to say that we do not follow the practice of some 
manufacturers who use cartons and similar cheap carriers when 
such packing is unsuited to the article. Our ' products are 
properly packed to guard against decomposition or deterioration* 
We pay {reight on all shipments of reasonable size and value. 

CL The Squibb products are supplied in Original Squibb 
packages of all the sizes current in this market The regular 
Weights and Measures are ordinarily {urnished, but packages 
in the Metric System of Weights and Measures may also be 
had upon specification.

SQUIBB*S ETHER, the Standarcl Antesllietic Ether 
o£ the world, is made by a special process, invented by 
Dr. E. R. Squibb in 1853, and by continuous improvement 
brought to practical perfection. This process, exclusively 
worked by us, yields a product of uniform purity and 
efficiency — absolute reliability; superior in vital respects even 
to the requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia In 
judging the fitness of Ether for anaesthetic purposes it must 
be remembered that with a product so exhaustible by heat, 
laboratory tests alone are not sufficient, but long clinical 
experience must complete the evidence of fitness. Holding in 
mind the important facts of surgical aneesthesia, we (eel that 
it is the duty of every hospital and every surgeon to select 
that ansesthetic which long and wide experience has proved 
to he the one that enables the patient to pass through his period 
of unconsciousness and the post-operative crisis with a min- 
imum of danger, to say nothing of the satisfaction to the sur- 
geon during and after the operation. 
For more than half a century and 
in millions of cases SQUIBB'S Ether 
has been used and is to-day in uni- 
versal use by surgeons for the safety 
and comfort of their patients.

SQUIBB*S CHLOROFORM is purified with great care 
by the special Squibb process, which insures a product that is 
above the requirements of the United States Pharmacopceia. 
It contains no free chlwine, chlorinated pyrogenous products or 
other impurities. 

I The only safeguard of the patient and surgeon against an 
impure article is the reliability of the manufacturer. Pure chlo- 
roform gives assurance during and after antesthesia. carries the 
least possible menace to the life of the patient, and reduces the 
discomforts usually attending chloroform aiuesthesia to a mini- 
mum. But an Impure article is exceedingly treacherous. 

Our spedal process for purifying this important product and 
our many years of practical study of the 
subject, enable us to supply a chlorofwm 
which is of uniform Purity and Efficiency 
and therefore of absolute Reliability. 

Squibb's ChlcH^orm is in regular use 
by all the leading hospitals and by the 
majwity of physicians; it is universally 
recognized as the Quality Standard.

The doeea given are those for adults by the mouth, unless otherwise stated. The 
doses of the official products are the average doses as stated in the U. S. Pharmacopoeia, 
8th Revision (1900). 

To determine the fraction of the adult dose suitable for children of different ages, 
divide the age (in years) by 12 plus the age. Thus: for a child 2 years old the pro- 
portionate dose is 2 divided by (12 -|~ 2), or ^/7 that for adults. In the case of powerful 
narcotic drugs about one-half this proportion holds; whereas of cathartics two to three 
times this proportion is usual, and children also bear belladonna preparations, pilocarpine, 
arsenic, and mercury well. The dose for hypodermic injection is ordinarily one-half to 
two-thirds, the rectal dose one and a half to double, that by mouth. 

"Av. Dose" stands for average dose; "Cc.** for cubic centimeter; "Gm." for 
gramme; "gr." for grain; "g. s." for glass-stopper.

Acacia; Gum Arabic; Gum Acacia. Exudation from Acacia Senegal. Great 
care is exercised in selecting a good market grade. This is then thoroughly hand- 
picked, to remove dirt and pieces of bark and twigs invariably present and to 
reject all gum that ia not of proper physical appearance. All this entails consider- 
able loss, often exceeding 10 percent. The picked acacia is then passed through 
grinders and sieves, that passing through No. 30 but not through No. 50 size being 
reserved for the granulated, and the remainder subjected to pulverization in chaser 
mills, the "flotation" process. The granulated yields an exceedingly acceptable solu- 
tion for prescription use. Acacia Squibb is of exceptional purity; it is perfectly 
free from starch, sugar, dextrin, etc., and in full accord with U. S. P. requirements. 
Soluble in 1 to 2 parts water; insoluble in alcohol, ether of oils. Incompatible with

pharmaceutical uses, but it is of a degree of purity to especially adapt it for 
external application by the physician or nurse in the sickroom. Miscible with 
water, ether, or chloroform. Used medicinally in low fevers; as antiseptic wash 
for wounds and the skin, etc. Dose: 1 to 4 fluidrachms (4 to 15 Cc.) Incom-

dehydrated lime and rectified by redistillation, giving a product which runs about 
99.8 percent, strength, sp. gr. 0.7945 at 15.6° C, containing no empyreumatic 
impurities, and complying with all official tests, including the very sensitive sul- 
phuric acid test. It should be pointed out that when absolute alcohol is kept 
for any length of time in cork-stoppered bottles, it is apt to show slight traces of 
discoloration when the acid test is applied, which, however, if within the limits of 
merely browning the acid, may be regarded as not seriously objectionable.

gives evidence in both color and odor. It is sawed iiUo different sizes, according 
to the requirements of the trade, and is colorless, translucent, and has but a slight 
coating of bicarbonate on the surface. It is slightly above U. S. P. strength, con- 
taining over 07 percent, of a mixture of acid ammonium carbonate and ammonium 
carbamate, and yielding at least 32 percent, ammonia gas. It is free from heavy

Amylis Niiris. As used in medicine this chemical is a rather complex mixture, 
varying considerably with the process of manuCacture employed.' It is important 
therefore that a uniform method of preparation be followed. Assayed by U. S. P. 
process, our article when fresh exceeds the minimum strength limit of 80 percent, 
of amyl nitrite, is free from water and aldehyde, and contains much less than 
permissible limit of free acid. On keeping it becomes weaker and more acid. It 
is offered in well-corked amber bottles and in evenly blown cylindrical glass tubules 
of sufficient strength to resist accidental breakage so common with the ordinary 
globular pearls, the contents of these tubules being carefully measured to insure 
accurate dosage. For use, a tubule is broken in a handkerchief and the vapor 
inhaled. Amyl nitrite is miscible in all proportions with alcohol or ether; almost 
insoluble in water. Used as Antispasmodic and Vaso-dilator, chiefly in angina 
pectoris, dyspnea, asthma, fainting, cocaine poisoning, either by mouth or by inhalation. 
Av. Dose: 3 minims (0.2 Cc.) in sweetened water. Antidotes: atropine; ergot 
or strychnine hypodermically. Keep in cool place to minimize loss by evaporation and 
disturb as little as possible. Inflammable I

Ceratum Cantharidis; Blistering Cerate; Blistering Plaster. The active principle o{ 
cantharides is not soluble in water, and a very thin film of water upon the skin will 
prevent the blistering effect of the cerate. It is necessary therefore that the skin 
be thoroughly cleansed before applying this cerate. Soap and water are usually 
effective, but frequently it is necessary to resort to dilute acetic acid or vinegar, 
which not only r^noves the excretions from the skin but is an excellent solvent of 
the active principle of cantharides. Cerate of cantharides should not be oondenmed 
because of supposed lack of blistering potency, unless these necessary precautions 
and preparatory measures have failed. The cerate here offered is made after the 
official formula, with the single exception that the petrolatum is omitted, as experience 
has shown that the article is more effective when the mineral oil is lacking. In 
therapeutic value this cerate is fully the equal of the more strictly official one, and 
is believed to be superior otherwise.

Chloroformum ; Formyl Trichloride. For Anaesthesia. Purified with great care in this 
laboratory by the special Squibb process. Only one grade is offered, which is 
above pharmacopceial requirements, contains less than 1 percent, of alcohol, and 
is free from chlorides and chlorine, chlorinated pyrogenous compounds, and all 
impurities deccxnposable by sulphuric acid. This pure Chloroform for Anaesthesia 
is now put up in cork-stoppered amber bottles only. The change from glass- 
stoppered containers was made after a systematic series of careful observations, 
extending over five years, had demonstrated its advisability. Among the advan- 
tages derived is the very important one that any decomposition occurring will very 
quickly show itself by bleaching the inner end of the cork, thus indicating the 
presence of chlorine compounds; while with the glass stopper it would have to be 
great enough to be sensible to the nose before it would be suspected. Further, the 
loss by evaporation was shown to be only about 1 percent, per year with the cork 
Copper, while with the best obtainable glass stopper it was found to exceed 3 per- 
cent per year. Finally, cheapness and convenience are in favor of the cork stop- 
per. Chloroform is soluble in about 200 times its volume of water, in all propor- 
tions in alcohol, ether, benzin and oils. Aside from its anesthetic use, it is 
employed also medicinally as an Analgesic and Antispasmodic, and pharmaoeutically 
and technically. Av. Doses (by mouth), 5 minims (0.3 Cc.) dissolved in elixir; 
avoid water. Very irritating to mucous surfaces. Antidotes: inversion of patient; 
atropine or strychnine hypodermically; amyl nitrite or ammonia by inhalation; artificial 
respiration, etc. Chloroform rapidly decomposes when its vapor comes into contact 
with an exposed gas-light, evolving peculiar chlorine vapors which are extremely irri* 
tating to all present and may even be dangerous to the patient. Therefore it should 
never be administered by gas-light, unless the latter be well protected by a closed 
glass case and abundant provision be furnished for the rapid escape from the room 
of all decomposition products. (See also Elixir; Emulsion; Liniment; Mixture; 
Spirit; Water; and Inhalers, in rear pages).

Cassia Bark. Chinese Cinnamon is the inner bark of the cultivated cinnamon 
tree. There are several varieties, known by the localities from which th^ come, 
Ceylon, China, Saigon, etc.; the Chinese Cinnamon, or Cassia, being the most 
used in this country. Aromatic and Carminative; also used in perfumery and as 
flavoring. Doset 4 grs. (0.25 Gm.) Ceylon bark (see next article) is the tnie 
cinnamon and more highly prized, though the Cassia is similar to it in properties, 
varying, however, somewhat in appearance and considerably in flavor. The Ceylon 
is collected by stripping the bark from the shoots and collecting in bundles. It is 
then allowed to remain in this state for a while, to undergo fermentation whioh 
makes the subsequent process of removing the outer bark more easy. The bark 
then contracts, curling up into quills, which are wrapped around each other, the 
smaller inside, until six or eight layers are formed. Cassia bark is gen««Ily found 
less tightly ciirled up and each quill separate. It is redder and darker, and has a 
stronger but less pleasant odor. It is also rougher than C^on.

difficulty of securing the desirable and necessary degree of permanency. The 
products here listed are prepared with all the pharmaceutical skill at our command, 
from best quality ingredients, and are as fully permanent and satisfactory otherwise 
as it is possible to make them in rigid adherence to the pharmacopoeial formulas.

Aether; Sulpbunc Etber; Etbylic Ether; Ethyl Oxide. The high-quality Anaesthetic 
Ether o( this list, made in this laboratory by the original process first devised by 
Dr. E. R. Squibb in 1853, and by continuous improvement brought to practical 
perfection, thus insuring uniformity of the product and eliminating the danger of 
admixture with ether of higher specific gravity, which is unavoidable when both 
commercial and anaesthetic ether are manufactured in the same still. The Squibb 
Ether is superior in vital respects, having been proven by both laboratory tests and 
clinical experiences through half a century to be the purest, strongest, safest and 
most economical. It is put up only in soldered tin cans with soft metal caps, which 
may be readily cut out with a pocket knife, and the ean then stoppered with a o6rk; 
or the cap may be punctured with a pin or needle so that the ether will issue in a 
stream or spray under pressure, thus affording the advantages of the "drop method** 
of administration. These soldered cans are all carefully tested for leakage by 
submerging in hot water bath, thus placing the contents under pressure, whereby 
leaky spots are located by the bubbles of vapor rapidly emitted. Elach can is thiM 
proved to be tight before sending out. However rough handling in transporta- 
tion occasionally opens a weak spot in a seam which was not evident when testing, 
and the ether rapidly escapes. Such defective cans will rarely travel far before 
becoming entirely empty, especially in warm weather, although outwardly they 
would appear to be well preserved and without defect. In all such cases therefore 
it should not be concluded that the manufacturer is at fault. Colorless liquid, of 
characteristic odor and burning, sweetish taste; 96 peroei^. absolute ether; sp. gr. 
0.716 to 0.717 at 25° C. Sohible in about 10 times its volume water; miscible in 
all proportions with alcohol, chloroform, oils, petroleum benzin and benzene. Inhala- 
tion Anesthetic, Anodyne, Stimulant, Antispasmodic. Average Doses 15 min- 
ims (1 Cc.) Antidotes: artificial respiration; inversion of patient; ammonia; oxy- 
gen or fresh air. Ether is highly inflammable. Its vapor, when mixed with air 
and ignited, explodes violently. It should be kept in a cool place, and remote from 
lights and fire, and administered only by daylight or in electric light. (See also 
Spirit; and Inhalers in Part II).

libc»*ation of bromine. To absorb this a small quantity of finely divided silver is 
placed in each bottle, and inert silver bromide is formed, thus permitting the ready 
use of the solution for inhalation without even waiting for the silver to settle at the 
bottom. Colorless, inflammable, volatile liquid, of burning taste and chloroform-like 
odor. Sp. gr. 1.453 to 1.457. Soluble in alcohol, chloroform, or ether. Inhala-

size. The contents may be used for local anesthesia by simply pulling out the fine 
wire which is soldered into the top of each can, thus making a small opening which 
permitsi the ethyl chloride to issue in a fine stream which can be directed upon the 
part. It is also c^ered in sealed glass vials or tubes containing a sufficient quantity 
for one local anesthesia. These tubes will be found to be preferable to the larger 
containers in which ethyl chloride is usually offered, because of the greater con- 
venience, econen^ and safety of using a fresh supply from a hermetically sealed 
tube for each occasion. Colorless, very volatile, inflammable liquid, of agreeable 
odor and burning taste. Sp. gr. 0.918 at 8° C; boiling point 12.5 to 13° C.

Extracts, Solid, Squibb 

The careful selection of prime drugs and the accurate preliminary assays to which 
they are subjected, combined with their complete exhaustion by the Squibb method 
of reperoolation, insure thoroughly reliable preparations. The solid extracts are 
made by evaporation at low temperatures, thus preventing the loss of the vola- 
tile constituents, chemical changes and the rendering insoluble of the active 
principles. These extracts will be found to be exceptionally active, soluble and 
uniform in dosage. Those which are official in the pharmacopoeia are made to con- 
form accurately and absolutely with U. S. P. standards. A number of extracts not 
official are assayed and adjusted to a required strength. These instances are noted 
under the individual extracts in the following list. All -the solid extracts are put 
up in containers of the proper capacity, with sufficient room for* the contents to 
expand under the ordinary changes of a temperate climate. They should not be 
subjected to an. unusual heat however. 

Thb laboratory also makes a number of actiic solid extracts, Ac§it*tra^, These 
fully represent the drugs from which they ai» prepared, and are of uniform, d^nite 
strength. See Acetextracts, page 2.

Fluidexlractft, Squibb 

The constantly growing recognition of the certainty of therapeutic action of the 
officially made fluidextract, from properly selected material, urges us to he more 
pressing in the presentation of these products. In a fluidextract the active princi- 
ples are directly available, so that the value of these preparations in medicine is 
not in doubt. A selection of the most active drugs offered by the market or 
obtained by direct importation from best sources, and a thorough exhaustion of 
the assi^red and tested drug, assure the production of fluidextracts of a standard 
strength, containing the maximum amount of active principle and accurately represent- 
ing the drug. The process of extraction employed is the well known r^percolation 
process which originated in this laboratory. The menstrua used are those which 
most effectively extract the medicinal ingredients of the drugs and thus are theoret- 
ically true solvents of them. The strength of the alcohol in these fluidextracts is 
fully equal to the requirements of the U. S. P., hence when deposits are discovered 
th^ may be considered as inert if all the self-evident precautions against evapora- 
tion, heat, etc., have been taken by the purchaser. In a considerable number 
of cases the pharmacopoeia prescribes a definite assayed al keloidal strength of the 
fluidextracts, and to this standard they are therefore accurately adjusted. 



FloiddCClttKtrflCtS • In addition to the list of alcoholic fluidextracts, attention is 
called to a special line of this laboratory, viz.: fluidextracts made with acetic acid, or 
FlmdaceUxtracte, These are offered as worthy of employment in view of the fact 
that they are fully up to the standard as regards therapeutic results, and in many 
instances are believed to possess advantages above the alcoholic (kiidextracts. These 
fluidacetextracts are made by repercolation with dilute acetic acid in place of alcohol, 
and about 6 percent, of acid remains in the finished fluidacetextract as a preservative. 
in no case does acetic acid fail to extract all the requisite principles of the drug and in 
some instances, like valerian and digitalis, it leaves behind oils and fats, the presence 
of which in a fluidextract is undesirable. The absence of alcohol in the product is 
also an advantageous circumstance. These fluidacetextracts afford ideal concen- 
trated solutions which may be used for making other liquid preparations, as they 
may be mixed with dilute acetic acid, dilute alcohol, water, glycerin or syrup, in 
any proportion, without precipitation of any active principle or much inert matter 
(a process which cannot always be carried out so successfully with the alcoholic 
fluidextracts). (Complete list of these Fluidacetextracts immediately follows the 
Fluidextracts).

mixed with water for bedside administration, differing in this important respect from 
the usual fluidextract which produces a very considerable precipitate upon dilution.

Fluldexlrac^ Ergol, Squibb 

No. 2570-S-1 pint $2.40: K P>nt Sl-24: X pint 64c. 

Flmdextradum Ergotm, It is proven that much of the value of Buidextract ergot 
depends upon the selection o( the best ergot obtainable* irrespective o{ cost, its 
thorough cleansing and preparation, and care in percolation. Spanish rye ergot 
is very superior in activity to any other kind, and should be used exclusively. Ergot 
from barley, wheat or oats, although showing some activity, is much inferior to that 
from rye, and the peculiar atmospheric conditions of the Spanish peninsula tend to 
the more mature and better growth of this fungus. The cleansing of ergot is of 
greatest importance, since the bags or cases in which the drug is imported often 
contain wormeaten and absolutely worthless material and dirt, nails, tacks and hair 
pins, dropped apparently by the women who pick the ergot. After the worth- 
less and foreign matter is all removed, the ergot is ground and transferred to the 
percolators and the active principles extracted by the Squibb repercolation process 
with the official menstruum of alcohol and a small amount of acetic acid, whereby 
a Buidextract is obtained which accurately represents the drug Cc. for Gm. Emmen-

The use o{ Larkspur, Stavesacre and other varieties o{ Delphinium in ointment, 
tinctures, etc., has created a donand (or a concentrated form which may be diluted 
to tincture strength with water and alcohol at the time o( using, and which may 
therefore be employed with more satisfaction for the removal of body-parasites, 
etc A fluidextract made with 10 percent, acetic acid is best adapted for this 
purpose, as it produces a preparation containing all the virtues of the drug, having 
• beneficial effect upon the skin, and being far less expensive than one made with 
alcohol. To prepare a solution of tincture strength from this fluidextract, add one

^ts and physicians frequently complain that this fluidextract becomes "worthless"

and the better the root the more it appears to contain. This physical property is 
necessary to its proper therapeutic effects, and therefore it would not be justifiable 
to select a root which ib inferior in this property. From past experience, it would 
appear that the cause (or the thickening of the fluidextract is a low temperature, 
such as it would be exposed to by transportation in the winter season or in cold 
vaults and cellars. Unless the gelatinized clot is of too long standing, warmth 
applied, or at times a few drops of ammonia water with agitation, will restore it to

Zingiber, The dried rhizome of Zingiber officinale. The chief sources of gin- 
ger are West Indies. Jamaica. Africa. Hindoostan and China. The rhizome is 
collected in the winter, cleaned, scalded and rapidly dried, and is then known as 
Black Ginger. This process of preparation is carried still further with Jamaica 
Ginger and some that comes from the East Indies, by the removal of this dark 
skin, thus leaving the roots yellowish white in color. As this variety commands a 
higher price, the poorer qualities are scxnetimes made to resemble it by bleaching or 
covering with carbonate of lime. It has a warming, cordial effect when used as a 
condiment and also tends to prevent flatulence. Powdered ginger is often adul- 
terated, the most frequent adulterants being rice starch, exhausted ginger, flour, 
turmeric, or brick-dust, and chalk, capsicum being added to increase the pungency. 
The article here offered is strictly pure and of best quality procurable. Av« Doses

Glycyrrhiza, Squibb 

No. 3335-S-l Pulverized tin. lb. 35c. 

Glycyrrhiza; Russian Licorice Root« To those pharmacists who desire a 
carefully selected licorice root, peeled and finely pulverized so as to be especially 
acceptable for use in prescription work, we offer our Russian glycyrrhiza. Lico- 
rice root that is free from worm-eaten and decayed pieces is not easily obtained in 
the market. As licorice is of value in pharmacy solely because of its sweet principle, 
whereby it conceals the taste of bitter drugs, and is unobjectionable in pill masses 
and as a covering powder, it is important that its taste should be unaccompanied 
by that of the bitter oleoresin which is a constituent of the whole licorice root. As 
the bittef principle resides chiefly in the bark, the desirability of thoroughly peeling 
the root before grinding is evident. Demulcent, Expectorant; also absorbent, in 
pill making. Avera|{e Dose: 60 grains (4 Gins.) (See also Elixir; Cstract; 
Fluidextract ; Mixture; Powder; Troches),

Linimentam Saponis Mollis. Formerly officially known as Tincture o( Green Soap, 
because, being originally made in Germany from vegetable oil, the soap was tinged 
greenish by the chlorophyll sometimes contained in it. This color was -^due more to 
accident than natural causes, and the custom of adding coloring matter grew and 
became firmly established. The color of a soft soap and the liniment therefrom does 
not in any way determine the real value, which depends on other properties such as 
consistence, cleansing power, solubility and uniform alkalinity. The soft soap of this 
laboratory is free from disagreeable odor, readily soluble and of the consistence of soft 
ointment. Th6 official liniment o( soft soap prepared from this soap is especially 
satisfactory to surgeons and dermatologists, as well as (or the toilet, for shampooing 
and similar purposes. Its alkalinity is very slight, merely sufficient to prevent rancidity.

Mangani Dioxidam PrmeipWatam; Manganese Peroxide or Hyperoxide; Black 
Oxide of Manganese. Native dioxide of manganese is o( varying purity and 
strength and frequently is largely adulterated, by foreign earths, powdered char- 
coal, and the like, and it has beoi extremely diflicult to get an article of the proper 
efficiency as • chlorine-producer l(when treated witW hydrochlcMic acid). The 
pharmacopoeia has therefore adopted a process for its manufacture which a&rds 
almost pure dioxide, equivalent to at least 62 percent, of metallic manganese This 
process is followed in this laboratory, and the article here listed is especially ocHn- 
mended to the consideration of pharmacists who wbh the best and, therefore, the 
most economical product. Great care is observed in its manufacture and it is 
proven to conform in all respects to the rigid official demands. Heavy, fine, black,

Massa HyJrargyri; Blue Mass ; Blue Pill ; Mercury Pill. Well-made mass, contain-

the completeness with which the mercury is subdivided in the mass. This is 
accomplished in our article by a specially devised mechanical shaker in which the 
mass is agitated until the globules of mercury are invisible under a lens magni- 
^ng ten diameters. Mercury mass has a tendency to harden on the surface by 
ag^i which, however, does not affect its efficiency. A small quantity o( glycerin is 
placed on the surface to minimize this condition. If not too old the mass immedi- 
ately under the surface will be found of the normal consistency. Cathartic. Altera- 
tive, Antisyphilitic; used also pharmaceutically. Average Dose: 4 grains (0.25

This Onnpound Tincture Opium is prepared in accordance with a formula 
devised in 1866 by Dr. E. R. Squibb. Elach fluidrachm contains about 7 minims 
each tincture opium, tincture capsicum and spirit camphor, and 2}4 minims chloro- 
form, with alcohol. Its extemporaneous preparation is often attended by unsatis- 
factory results, due to lack of care in the selection of the ingredients or to inex- 
perience in combining them properly. In time of epidemic cholera or diarrhea, 
when a person has two movements of the bowels more than natural in twenty- 
four hours, the second one is followed with a dose of this mixture, the dose being 
repeated after every succeeding movement. If the movements increase in fre* 
quency or in copiousness after the second dose has been taken, a physician is 
sent for, a double dose being taken after each movement until he arrives. Immedi- 
ately after taking the first dose, the person goes to bed and remains there for twelve 
hours after the diarrhea has entirely ceased. Doses for persons over 18 yrs. of 
age, one teaspoonful ; from 14 to 18 yrs., a small teaspoonful ; from 10 to 14 yrs., a 
half teaspoonful; from 6 to 10 yrs., 30 drops; from 2 to 6 yrs., 10 to 30 drops; for

Sinapis Nigra; German Mustard. The seed of Brassica nigra^ coming chiefly from 
Asia and southern Europe, but cultivated to some extent in this country. There 
are two varieties, black and white, the former the smaller, darker, and more pun- 
gent. Generally a mixture of the two is used, producing a powder which has a 
very strong stimulating effiect on the mucous membrane of the stomach and also 
frequently applied to the skin to proddce redness. Very little odor is noticeable 
until water has been added to the ground mustard, as oil mustard does not exist in 
the dry seed but is produced by the action of water. The black mustard listed is 
of strict identity and quality, without adulterants. Used pharmaoeutically and as

MyrMlca^ Squibb 

N«. 4490-S-l While tin. lb. 45c. 

MynaHea; Nutmeg. Choice grade. Kernel of the ripe seed of Myristiea fragrans, 
• tree which grows chie^ in the Moluccas, Sumatra, Java, Penang and C^lon. 
The fruit is picked by hand and the outside covering removed. The mace, which 
encloses the nut, is carefully separated without breaking it any more than neces- 
sary, flattened out, dried in the sun, and sprinkled with salt water to preserve it. 
The nuts themselves are then dried till the nutmeg inside becomes loosened, which 
permits the shell to be broken and the nutmeg to be taken out. The Dutch orig- 
inally soaked the nutmegs in lime solution to destroy their germinating power and 
to preserve the monopoly of the industry. This practice still obtains and there is 
even yet a demand for the white nutmeg. Such an article however is not o( offi- 
cial quality, and the Penang nutmegs are not treated in this manner. Besides its 
medicinal value (as Aromatic and Carminative), nutmeg is a very grateful spice 
frequently used as a flavoring agent in drink as well as food. A method of adul- 
terating nutmeg consists in extracting the oil by boring a hole through the mid- 
dle, boiling with water and then closing the hole so carefully that the nutmeg may 
be sold without the fraud being detected. Average Dose: 7}^ grains

is taken to select a high-grade article, free from admixture with foreign materiaL 
especially darker gums. This myrrh responds to the official tests in all respects, 
the most significant characteristic and proof of genuineness being the production 
of a brownish^ellow tincture with alcohol which gives a purplbh-red tint upon the 
addition of nitric acid, and the fact that it does not swell in water differentiates 
it from gum adulterants. Roundish or irregular, brownish-yellow to reddish-brown

rancidity. Therapeutically the Norway oil has been proven preferable to oils 
obtained from any other part of the world. Particular attention is called to the

Oil Olive, Squibb 

N«. 4690-S-1 bottle, pint 70c.; ^ pint 40c. 

Olmun OlivoB, Fixed oil expressed from the ripe fruit o( Olea europma. The 
best quality of olive oil is obtained from olives picked before maturity and 
immediately pressed. It is then called "virgin oil" and has a greenish tinge. 
The residue of crushed olives left after extraction of the virgin oil is thrown 
into boiling water which drives out the remaining oil, and this, together with the 
oil extracted from wholly ripe olives, constitutes the common oil for culinary pur- 
poses and for making soaps. Olive oil is largely adulterated ; cotton-seed, sesame, 
peanut and lard oik being chiefly used. Its use in pharmacy in liniments, oint- 
ments, cerates, etc., and its value as an article of food, make the question of its 
purity an important one. The quality here offered is virgin oil of especially fine 
flavor, imported from known sources and therefore free from cotton-seed oil or 
adulteration of any kind. Pale-yellow or light greenish-yellow; slight odor; nutty, 
oleaginous taste; with faintly acrid after-taste. Sp. gr. 0.910 to 0.915. Soluble 
readily in chloroform or ether, very sparingly in alcohol. Average Dose: 1

OUam Aurantii Corticia, Volatile oil obtained from fresh peel of sweet orange 
by expression. When improperly kept, it undergoes oxidation with formation of 
turpentine-like bodies. Consequently it should be preserved in small well^toppered 
amber bottles, in a cool place. An oil that has developed a terebinthinate odor 
should not be dispensed. The pharmacopoeia prescribes tests excluding added oil 
turpentine and fixing certain temperature limits for fractional distillation, enabling 
the detection of added adulterants and unpermissible oxidation products. Pale- 
yellowish liquid, of characteristic aromatic odor and taste of orange. Soluble in 
about 4 volumes alcohol, in all proportions absolute alcohol, in equal volume glacial

Ointmenl Mercury Nitralet Squibb 

No. 4855-S-l jar, lb. 75c 

Ungaentum Hydrargyri Niiratis; Citrine Ointment. Strictly official. Pure leaf lard 
is used in preparing this ointment, and has been officially adopted in place of lard 
oil directed in U. S. P. 1890, in order to minimize the well-known proneness of th« 
ointment to deccnnpose under ordinary conditions. The ointment here offered will 
become ccnnparatively hard in consistence much earlier than the formerly offi- 
cial preparation, biit it will be found to keep perfectly, and practically no reduc- 
tion of the mercuric nitrate takes place. It is generally recognized pharmaceuti- 
cally, that a hardening of this ointment is evidence of the formation of solid elaidin 
and therefore is a proof of the purity of the materials used. This comparatively 
hard ointment is preferable to keep in stock, and only requires gentle warmth or 
addition of a few drops of lard oil to bring it into a condition to be readily handled 
at time of dispensing. Stimulant Alterative, in tinea capitis, impetigo, psoriasis, 
porrigo, etc

ointment, entirely free from grittiness, and carrying the requisite 10 percent, of red 
oxide in a combination base of hydrous wool-fat and petrolatum. Stimulant Vul-

delicate observations can be made with a paper of this shade than one that is of a

o( the sugar of milk now prescribed. It is believed the older formula gives a better 
preparation, the potassium sulphate, because of its hard crystals, permitting the 
more minute subdivision and admixture of the ingredients, as well as having distinct 
therapeutic value, especially as a corrigent of the opium. Squibb's Dover's Powder

being all separately well dried before being mixed. The powder consists of potas- 
sium and sodium tartrate (Rochelle salt), sodium bicarbonate, tartaric acid, and 
sodium chloride, the latter being added to enhance its medicinal activity and palata- 
bility. Particularly applicable to household use, as the ingredients are already mixed 
instead of being in two separate papers as usual. As an Aperient the dose is one 
to three teaspoonfuls (5 to 15 Gms.) with or without sugar, stirred into three-fourths 
of a large glassful of cold water, and drank at once while the powder is suspended 
in the water. For use as an alkaline mineral water, or as a substitute for Rochelle 
salt, 3 grammes (about }^ teaspoonful), stirred into the same quantity of water as 
above, and taken two or three times a day, may be suflicient. In the use of this 
powder the effervescence is intentionally slight, or, if the water be very cold (as it 
should be), is hardly perceptible, as the liberation of the carbonic acid is intended 
to take place slowly internally where it may be of service. Dampness should be 
carefully excluded by keeping the bottle well-corked.

0£ guaranteed purity and accurate strength, as demanded (or the reactions, tests 
and assays prescribed by the U. S. Pharmacopoeia, Eighth Decennial Revision 
(1900). Some numbers are omitted; these are of reagents or test-eohitions (as 
(or instance alcohol, ammonia water, ether, etc.) which are to be found of requisite 
quality on the pharmacists' shelves. The secondary figures in our permanent num- 
bers are the numbers by which the reagents are designated in the pharmacopoeia. 
For example : our permanent No. 5905«S«8 indicates that the official number of 
test solution of ammonium carbonate is 8; permanent number 5915"S«10 shows 
that the U. S. P. number of test solution of ammonium molybdate is 10; etc. For 
want of room, we have employed the familiar abbreviations "T. S." and "Y. S." for 
"Test Solution" and "Volumetric Solution," respectively: 11/2, N/IQ, 11/60 and N/IOO, 
for "Half-Normal," "Tenth-Normal," "Fiftieth-Normal" and "Hundredth-Normal,

irritating to sensitive tissues like those of the eye, than pure silver nitrate, whether 
used direct or in watery solution, as crystalline silver nitrate is often necessarily 
acid in reaction. Employed mainly as caustic to warts, sluggish ulcers, etc.

Sapo Mollis, German Green Soap, as it is still aoBBetimas called in the trade, was at 
one time imported into this country in large quantities, and since it possessed a green- 
ish color, due probably to the chlorophyll contained in the vegetable oils from which 
it was made, all soft soaps became generally known as green soap. Of late years, 
however, soft soaps of domestic manufacture have largely replaced the imported arti- 
cle, and are of a clear yellow color, except when artScially colored by indigo or potaa- 
sium bichromate or accidentally tinged by copper oleate fermed when copper vessels 
are used in the saponification process. The pharmacopotia directs the manufacture 
of this soap from linseed oil and potash. As it is exceedingly dificult to proctve a 
cold-pressed linseed oil, this laboratory prepares a soap from refined, extra-white, 
winter^ressed cotton-seed oil, which is in every respect much superior to the offi- 
cial soap. The Squibb soft soap is generally recognized as an exoeHent article. It 
is free frcMn disagreeable odor, is of clear yellow color, contains no green coloring- 
matter, and is uniformly alkaline to the Mctent of no more than 0.25 percent, of caus- 
tic alkali. It is therefore superior for use as a detergent soap, ior preparing the 
official tincture and for compounding with carbolic acid, sulphur, etc. When soft 
soap is ordered* this product will be supplied, though if any one demres the less sat- 
isfactory, strictly official soap prepared from linseed oil, it can be furnished. Used 
phsrmaceutically; also as Detergenf and Antipruritic, in parasitic skin dii

tincture offered by this house, while of strictly pharmacopoeial strength, is believed 
to be a superior preparation. As much o£ its medicinal value depends upon ethers 
which are slowly developed as the result of a reaction similar to "aging" in wines, 
and which render this remedy of much value in kidney and bladder troubles, we do 
not send out this product until it is at least one year of age. By comparing it

This Benzoinated Cream has been supplied for many years as a special laboratory 
product. It has been proven a most valuable article in cases where the action 
of ordinary cold cream is insufficient to effect prompt relief. It differs from the ordin- 
ary article in being a therapeutic salve instead of a simple m^echanical ointment. 
It is used for the same purposes for which cold cream is so generally emplc^ed, 
but being compounded with other remedial agents, it possesses additional and nota- 
ble medicinal properties which permit of its wider and more beneficial use as a* 
safe and 'healing application to the skin. Its added medicaments are benzoin and 
camphor, natural beeswax being used in preference to white wax, as the latter by 
undergoing the bleaching process has lost that blandness which the natural wax 
possesses. Emollient, Antiseptic and Antipruritic, in all uncomfortable and dis- 
tressing conditions of the skin.

Antacid, Corrective, Digestive. Papain is a 
digestive ferment, and is active in alkaline aa 
well as acid secretions. In combination with 
charcoal and sodium bicarbonate it has been 
found useful in delayed digestion, accompanied 
with fermentation, flatulence and pyrosis. Ipe- 
cac and nux vomica stimulate the peptic cells 
and hence overcome gastric atony. Tablets Absorbent Digestive Squibb are used 
with generally good results in chronic indigestion, the result of overeating or imper- 
fect mastication of food, or where, from debilitated conditions, the secretion of gas- 
tric juice is deficient in amount or weak in digestive power. Doses 1 or 2 tab- 
lets, before or after meals, repeated in an hour or two, ij[ required.

Antipyretic, Analgesic. Acetanilid is prompt and certain in its action and if pure 
b rarely followed by unpleasant after-effects. As an antipyretic, it is used in sthenic 
(evers, with good results in robust patients, but in prolonged pyrexia the cold bath 
is less liable to lead to complications. As an analgesic, it is a valuable remedy in 
relieving pain of a reflex or spasmodic character. In combination with caffeine or 
other cardiac tonic to overcome its depressing effect, it is a favorite remedy in 
migraine and neuralgic pains generally. (See Tablets Migraine, Squibb). Occa- 
sionally through incautious administration or weak heart, marked cardiac depression 
with cyanosis follows; should this occur, the patient must be placed in a recumbent 
position, artificial heat applied and stimulants given. (See also Acetanilid Squibb, 
page 1).- Tablets Acetanilid Squibb are made fnnn the purest acetanilid and are 
so prepared that they disintegrate as soon as they reach the stomach, thus securing 
the prompt therapeutic effect b£ every dose. Dose: For children, 1 tablet every 
two or three hours. For adults, 1 to 5 tablets every two or three hours (or not 
more than three doses.

Together they are commonly used in acute rheumatism,

muscular soreness promptly, and usually without bad after-effect. The doubt 
among some physicians, that tablets o( this nature are not therapeutically active by 
reason of the insoluble character of the ingredients, may be dispelled by dropping our 
tablet in water and noting the rapidity with which it crumbles to powder. Great 
care is observed in all of Squibb's tablets to prevent decomposition, and to present 
the medicaments in their natural activity, unchanged by the process of manufacture; 
hence they can be relied on (or prompt and uniform action. Dose: 1 tablet 
every hour or two until pain and fever are relieved. Caution : Tablets containing 
salol should not be exposed to direct sunlight or kept in a warm place, else their 
therapeutic effect will be retarded.

Acid arsenous affects tbe blood, the nerves and the skin. Under its use nutrition 
generally improves, bodily weight increases, and the skin becomes soft and smooth. 
It thus acts as an Alterative and Tonic, and b employed in anemia, malarial cachexia, 
obstinate skin diseases, neuralgia and in controlling the nervous symptoms in epi- 
lepsy and chorea. Its use creates a tolerance, yet it is an active poison and should 
be administered with caution. In case of reddening of the eyelids or pain or ful- 
ness of the stomach, it is advised to discontinue its use until these symptoms abate, 
and then resume it. (For antidote, see Acid Arsenous, page 3). Doses 1 tablet 
after each meal, increasing gradually until desired effect is obtained.

Aconite is used to control inflammation with high arterial tension, and to reduce 
fever. It quiets the heart, reduces the force and frequency of the pulse, lessens 
the number of respirations, increases the action of the skin, and allays restlessness. 
In the acute attacks of sthenic fevers, tonsillitis, ulcerative sore throat and sudden 
colds, it is regarded as a valuable and reliable remedy, but it must be used with 
caution. In over-doses it is an active poison. (See Fluidextract Aconite, page 83), 
Tablets Aconite Squibb represent the full potency of the best German aconite 
root, carefully assayed and standardized. Doses 1 tablet dissolved in ten (10)

Tablets Aconitine 1/500 gr^ Squibb 
No. 10055-S-l 

The action of aconitine is that of aconite. Moderate doses are stated to lessen 
the force and frequency of the pulse and reduce the number of respirations; larger 
doses to increase the pulse rate, interfere with its rhythm and through its action on 
the respiratory centers to cause short hurried breathing. In overdoses it is an active 
poison, death occurring from paralysis of the heart and the cerebrospinal centers. 
Aconitine is used for neuralgic and sciatic pains, and is considered especially use- 
ful in trifacial neuralgia. Some patients show an idiosyncrasy to its use, and it 
should therefore be given cautiously, more particularly where weak heart exists, 
beginning with the smaller dose and gradually increasing until the systemic eSiect 
is observed. (For antidotes, see Aconitine, page 12). Doses 1 tablet, every 
three or four hours until effective.

Tablets Agaricin l/io gr., Squibb 
No. 10065-S-1 

Agaricin (Agaricic Acid, see page 3), was first introduced by Dr. Murrell as a 
remedy for controlling excessive sweating. Its physiologic action has not been 
clearly defined, but it appears to act directly upon the sweat glands and not 
through the nerve centers. It has been used also for the excessive sweating of 
gouty patients, but it is principally employed to control pight sweats in phthisis. 
The action of agaricin is slow, four or five hours elapsing before its effects are 
apparent ; hence the dose should be timed accordingly. Occasionally better results 
in phthisis are obtained through combination with other antihydrotics (See Tablets 
Night Sweat, Squibb.) Doses 1 tablet, after supper, repeated at bedtime if 
required.

As is known, ammonium bromide efficiently acts as a Sedative in nervous excite-

cord; it allays reflex irritability. It is used in epilepsy, mania, sexual excitement, 
seasickness, sleeplessness from overwork or worry and in various phases of nervous 
exaltation. It is believed to be less depressing than the sodium or potassium salt, yet, 
on account of its pungent and disagreeable taste, it is not so frequently employed. 
Long-continued use often causes an acne-like eruption and a depressed mental con- 
dition; but these symptoms usually disappear upon withdrawal of the medicine. 
Doses 1 to 3 tablets, with water, repeated in an hour or two if required.

Pains of a reflex or spasmodic character as seen in locomotor ataxia, migraine, and 
neuralgia are commonly relieved by antipyrine. In fever it is seen to rapidly reduce 
temperature; but as it does not shorten the course of disease the present tendency 
is not to use it in continued pyrexia n[>ut to substitute the cold bath as being less 
liable to lead to subsequent complications. Some patients show a susceptibility to 
the effects of antipyrine and its administration is followed by depression and cyanosis. 
Should these symptoms manifest themselves, the hints given under Tablets Acet- 
anil id should be carefully followed. Good results have also been obtained in asth-

Binnuth subgallete acts as a tonic end astringent 
to the mucous membrane; Pepsin supplies the gastric ferment where that agent is 
deficient in quantity or weak in digestive power; Nux Vomica acts as a stimulant 
to the peptic cells of the stomach, and is considered one of the best remedies in 
enfeebled states of that organ, enabling the stomach to tolerate and digest food 
and affording relief in the various distressing symptoms arising from faulty digestion.

Bismuth subnitrate is used in dyspepsia, to control nausea and vomiting and to pre- 
vent flatulence and pyrosis. It is found useful in the chronic gastritis of alcoholics, 
in gastralgia and in ulcer of the stomach. It acts as a Sedative and Astringent in 
inflamed conditions of the gastric mucosae of the stomach and intestines, especially 
when of a catarrhal nature. Tablets Bismuth Subnitrate Squibb are worthy of 
special mention. They disintegrate at once in the presence of water, and yield 
more rapid therapeutic effects than capsules or cachets. If, as sometimes happens 
in nausea, it is inadvisable to give much liquid, a tablet may be placed in a spoon 
and a few drops of water added. Or it may be placed upon the tongue until the 
action of the saliva causes it to crumble. Dose: 1 tablet every hour or two, in 
diarrhea and vomiting in infants.

The iron and alkali carbonate exist in these tablets in the uncombined state; in 
presence of moisture, as in the stcxnach, reaction takes place which results in the 
formation o£ ferrous carbonate. Nascent ferrous carbonate is universally conceded 
to be one of the best forms in which iron can be administered; it is rapidly acted 
upon by the stomach, easily utilized, produces a marked increase in the quantity of 
hemoglobin and the red corpuscles, and rarely causes any constitutional disturb- 
ances; in anemia and debility its effects are soon apparent in the bettered nutrition 
and the altered state of the blood. Tablets Blaud's Squibb are offered chocolate-

clay-colored feces, digestive disturbance and febrile symptoms it has been found to

As is well-known, cocaine applied to the mucous membranes acts as a Local Anes- 
thetic. Internally it acts as an Excitant to the central nervous system. According 
to physiologists, small doses stimulate the cerebral functions, lessen tissue waste, 
and enable the patient to undergo great mental and muscular strain without fatigue; 
whereas large doses paralyze the sensory and motor nerves, the former being most 
affected. Under proper conditions it has been found useful as a Sedative to the 
mucous membranes, allaying pain and hypersensitive conditions, and hence afford- 
ing great relief in throat affections, and also in irritable stomach as shown by 
nausea, as well as in the v<xniting of pregnancy and seasickness. It is used also 
as an antidote to opium poisoning, and for combating the habit. Doses for

Colchicine is largely used in gout and rheumatism. It is reported to act upon the 
nerves, the skin and the bowels; allaying pain, inciting free perspiration with a 
subsidence of the fever and inflammation and producing free evacuations from the 
bowels. Some observers state that it acts also as a diuretic, but this is denied by 
Garrod and others. Certain patients show more susceptibility to its action than 
others, and it is hence deemed best to begin with small dose and gradually increase

Creosote has been used with good results in chronic bronchitis and in phthisis, 
also as an intestinal antiseptic. It is reported to improve nutrition, increase appe- 
tite, diminish expectoration and cause an increase in weight. It is recommended 
to give the remedy in gradually increasing dose until the point of tolerance is 
reached. Should, however, gastric disturbances arise, its use is discontinued, or 
the dose reduced until the irritation subsides. Tablets Creosote, Squibb are made 
from the purest wood creosote, and are prepared so that they disintegrate quickly in 
the stomach and cause little or no gastric irritation. Doses 1 tablet immediately 
after meals, with water or milk, gradually increased as tolerance is established.

Boric acid prevents fermentation of urine. 
Potassium bicarbonate neutralizes excess of 
uric acid, reduces irritation and inflammation 
of the bladder and urethra, and exerts a sol- 
vent action on uric acid calculi. Buchu acts 
as an antiseptic and stimulant to the mucous 
membranes of the genitonirinary organs, and 
in combination with dog-grass, comsilk and 
hydrangea, is seen to cause an increased flow of bland unirritating urine and lessen 
the pain and frequent desire to urinate. Atropine as an antispasmodic and anti- 
phlogistic delays vesical spasm and inflamed conditions of the bladder and urethra. 
These tablets are employed in cystitis and gonorrhea, except where the urinary 
secretion is highly alkaline; and in such cases hexamethylenamine (see page 117) 
is generally substituted. They are prepared in a most careful and skillful manner, 
none of the volatile ingredients of the drugs being lost. Doses 1 tablet, every 
three hours, between meals, with a large glass of water.

According to physiologiBts digitalin strengthens the action of the heart, increases 
the force of the contractions, reduces the frequency of the pulse and overcomes 
irregularity. Brunton says it increases arterial tension chiefly by the contraction of 
the arterioles. It is used as a Heart Tonic in weak, irritable, or intermittent heart 
action. Its effects are produced slowly, but they are prolonged and cumulative, 
especially where the urinary secretion is not increased. The direct diuretic action 
of digitalin is stated to be small, but in cardiac disease the drug appears to pro- 
duce marked diuresis, and is hence considered a valuable remedy in cardiac dropsy 
and renal insufficiency. Dose: 1 tablet every three or four hours. (For general 
description of digitalin and antidotes, see page 60.)

Digitalis strengthens heart action. It increases the force of the contractions, 
reduces the frequency of the pulsations, and overcomes irregularity. It raises 
arterial tension partly by increased muscular contraction of the heart, but chiefly, 
according to Brunton, by the contraction of the arterioles. It is a heart tonic used 
in ail cases of weak, irritable or intermittent heart action. Its effects are pro- 
duced slowly, but they are prolonged and cumulative, especially where the urinary 
secretion is not increased. The direct diuretic action of digitalis is small, but in 
cardiac disease it produces marked diuresis and is of value in cardiac and renal 
dropsy. It is particularly useful in valvular disease to strengthen the heart mus- 
cles. Dose: 1 tablet three or four times a day. Reduce dose if nausea, flushing 
of the face, or headache occur.

These tablets are indicated in cardiac and renal 
dropsy. It is maintained that digitalis does not cause 
any stimulation of the epithelium of the kidney and 
does not exert very much direct diuretic action; by 
its action on the heart in disease, it augments the 
urinary secretion by increasing the blood supply to the kidneys. The action of 
squill is somewhat analogous to digitalis; it has been found useful in passive forms 
of dropsy where the heart is obstructed and the pulse weak ; but its use is avoided 
when fever or an irritable condition of the kidney is present. Buchu acts as a 
stimulant to the mucous membrane, arid with the nitrate of potassium increases the 
diuretic power of the combination. Doses 1 tablet three times a day, between 
meals, with a large glass of water.

Guaiacol was introduced into the materia medica by Prof. Mueller as being superior 
to creosote. Wood creosote owes its therapeutic value largely to the guaiacol it 
contains. However, the beneficial effects that might be derived from the use of 
guaiacol in tuberculosis are often not obtained on account of its disagreeable odor 
and taste and the dyspeptic symptoms which its administration sometimes cai^es. 
These objections are almost entirely overcome in Squibb's tablets; the coating covers 
the taste and smell, and the guaiacol is presented to the stomach in such a finely 
divided state that it rarely causes any digestive disturbance. Doses 1 or 2 tablets 
with water or milk, every two or three hours or thrice daily.

it is a union of cholagogue and cathartic remedies that 
have proved useful in hepatic torpor and congestion

Heroin is held to be a remedy of much value, as a stimulant to the respiration in 
dyspnea and emphysema and as an anodyne in the treatment of bronchial and tuber^ 
cular cough, and to be preferable to morphine as a cough sedative because it does 
not disturb digestion or produce a habit readily. In asthma, by its effect upon the 
respiratory center and the relief it affords in dyspnea and emphysema, its action b 
reported to be prompt and prolonged, not only diminishing the severity of the 
attacks but preventing their recurrence. Combined with expectorants it is deemed 
useful in bronchitis, pneumonia and grip, and it is also used as a mild anodyne and 
as a substitute for morphine in combating the morphine habit. Doses 1 or 2 
tablets, every three or four hours, to allay cough in children and elderly people.

No. 10895-S-1 $3.75 $1.93 46c. 

Hexamethyienamine has been used to render the urinary secretion aseptic Its 
action depends upon the (act that it is decomposed in the system into formaldehyde, 
which being largely excreted by the kidneys, has the effect, it is claimed, of making 
the urine aseptic. Advantage is taken of this action in minor surgery of the geni- 
tourinary organs, the remedy being administered several days prior to the intended 
operation. In cystitis, with alkaline urine, heavily charged with pus and phosphates, 
it frequently restores the acid reaction and clears the urine. In subacute gonor- 
rhea, pyelitis and catheter fever, good effects have also been observed. Occasion- 
ally it causes hematuria. Dose: 1 or 2 tablets every three or four hours and 
at bedtime with a large glass of water.

According to clinical observation, hyoscine acts as a Sedative and Hypnotic; it 
quiets delirium, induces sleep and is a valuable remedy in mania. It has also been 
used with good results in sleeplessness caused by worry or great mental activity. 
Hyoscine is said to produce calm refreshing sleep and often to succeed where other 
hypnotics fail, especially where the wakefulness is not due to pain; to control the 
tremor in paralysis agitans though not curative of the disease; and to be preferable 
to morphine in diseases of the kidneys. Caution should however be observed in its 
administration, as occasionally patients show a marked susceptibility to the drug; 
the symptoms produced, while alarming, are not necessarily dangerous. Doses 1 
tablet, every hour or two until effective.

Disordered digestion with coated tongue, flatu-

for the use of this formula. Copper arsenite 
acts as an alterative and antiseptic and is 
ranked among the best remedies in intestinal 
indigestion and diarrhea, acting equally well 
in acute or chronic cases. Betanaphthol is considered a reliable antiseptic. Zinc 
sulphocarbolate and bismuth subgallate tend to overcome atonic conditions of the 
mucous membrane by their astringent and sedative action, and to allay the irritable 
and inflammatory state of the alimentary canal. Oil cinnamon is both carminative 
and antiseptic. The combination thus offers an excellent means for the treatment 
of acute and chronic diarrhea with disorders of digestion* Doses 1 or 2 tablets

This is an agreeable laxative (or young chil«

gogue; hence, in case of pasty, white, offen- 
sive stools of children, due to deficient biliary 
secretion it is seen to overcome the inactiv- 
ity o£ the liver and to act as a gentle laxative. Its action is supplemented in the form- 
ula by rhubarb and sulphur. Oil peppermint is a carminative, and adds to the palat- 
ability of the combination. For very young children the tablets are crushed and 
mixed with a little water in a spoon; older children swallow the tablet whole, with a 
little water. Doses (or infants, 1 to 3 tablets a day; for children one year or over,

No. 10975-S-l $2.80 $3.70 $1.90 45c. 

Unlike the usual lithium tablets on the market, these tablets dissolve with rapid efferve- 
scence and produce a perfectly clear solution, free from opacity and oily appearance. 
This is due to the fact that neither talcum nor oil is added. This materially increases 
the cost of production, but adds to their palatability. Hence, in comparing prices, this 
important point should be borne in mind. The use of lithium saltsan lithemic condi- 
tions is very prevalent, and the results usually satisfactory. In the natural mineral 
waters, however, the amount of the medicinal agent is ordinarily so variable, that thera- 
peutic results cannot be depended upon. Tablets Lithium Squibb on the other hand, 
contain an exact quantity of lithium salt and accomplish results more speedily. Dur-

These tablets are intended as a means of 
modifying cow's milk and rendering it 
easier of digestion. They supply the nec- 
essary salts and the milk sugar wanting in 
cow's milk; and experience has shown 
that cow's milk modified in this way makes 
an acceptable food for young children. In 
the majority of cases children thrive upon the milk so prepared. Cleanliness is 
necessary in connection with the nursing bottles, nipples, etc. For use, 1 tablet 
is crushed and added to each eight ounces of milk, the number being increased as 
the conditions warrant.

These tablets act as an Alterative Tonic. 
Their effect is a stimulation of metabolism, 
resulting in improved nutrition with an 
increased excretion of the products of tissue 
waste. Upon the blood, the lymphatic sys- 
tem and the skin, their action is pronounced, 
and in syphilitic and scrofulous diseases, chronic rheumatism, glandular enlarge- 
ments and certain skin diseases, they are employed with marked benefit. They 
rarely interfere with digestion, and they may be administered for long periods 
when required. Owing to the deliquescent nature of the ingredients, the tablets 
should be kept in well-corked bottles and dispensed in glass. Doses 1 to 3 
tablets immediately after meals, with at least a halftumblerful of water.

Nitroglycerin controls spasm and paroxysmal pain, and lessens arterial tension by 
the relaxation which it produces upon the whole arterial system, but mainly by its 
dilatation of the arterioles. It thus reduces the work of the heart and under its 
influence the beat becomes full and regular. It is deemed a valuable remedy in 
angina pectoris, syncope, asthma, epilepsy and the headaches of Bright's disease,

Oxgall favors the assimilation of fats, tends to 
prevent intestinal fermentation, increases the 
peristaltic action of the bowels and hence acts 
as a laxative; pancreatin assists in the diges- 
tion of fatty and starchy food and improves 
nutrition; quinine and nux vomica remove the 
atonic conditions; extract of colo<ynth com- 
pound and taraxacum stimulate the liver, and overcome hepatic torpor. These 
Tablets Oxgall Compound Squibb are a favorite remedy in the treatment of 
intestinal indigestion in women and persons of sedentary habits. They promote 
assimilation and nutrition, and prevent the reflex nervous ^mnptcnns, caused by the 
presence of undigested food in the bowels. In neurasthenic patients they act 
remarkably well. Doses 1 or 2 tablets, before meals, repeated in two hours if

increases the rate of the pulse Jbut lessens its (orce, causing at first a flushing of the 
(ace, followed by pallor which is more marked when the sweating is active. Its 
action is usually prompt and persists for two to (our hours. It appears to act upon i 

the glandular i^tem by a stimulation* of the ends of the secreting nerves. Occs- | 

sionally it produces nausea, headache and giddiness. It is used in Bright'a disease

Potassium bromidle acts as a Cerebral and Spina! Sedative, in small doses lessening 
nervous excitement, quieting the brain, the sexual system and the reflex centers of 
the spinal cord; in large doses it paraljrzes the oerebro-spinal centers. Hence it is 
useful in excited states of the nervous system, allaying reflex irritability; but it is 
contraindicated where the excitement is due to nerve exhaustion. It is given with 
good results in wakefulness caused by overwork or worry, in the convulsions of 
epilepsy, Bright's disease, and the convulsions of children, whether of centric origin, or 
depending upon other causes. In sexual excitement, threatened abortion, nervous head- 
ache, hysteria and delirium it is also a valuable remedy. Dose: 1 to 3 tablets, dis- 
solved in water, repeated every hour for two doses if necessary, to quiet the nerves 
and induce sleep; for convulsions, 3 to 6 tablets in water, repeated as necessary.

into salicylic acid and phenol. It acts without irritation, and corrects morbid con- 
ditions of the intestinal tract. Used in the treatment of acute and chronic rheuma- 
tism, lumbago and sciatica. Owing to the fact that salol is largely excreted by the 
kidneys as salicyluric acid, it is used in chronic inflammation of the bladder, gonor- 
rhea and catheter fever. It rarely produces nausea or gastric disturbance, but in 
cases where functions of the kidney are impaired or constipation exists, toxic action 
may manifest' itselL (For general description see Salol, in Part I.) Tablets Salol
